Tracking False Prophets from 2004-2008
Sandy Simpson has compiled and updated a sampling of false prophecies distributed by The Elijah List from 2004-2008. The following example from 2007 is only one of many.
The Spirit of the Lord says that God is placing a crown of manifestation on the heads of His faithful, diligent, chosen saints–a crown of great favor and authority with God and men–a new and greater installment of the fruits and blessings of the Spirit. Another measure, and another, and another. (Todd Bentley: THE DAY OF MANIFESTATION–IMPARTATION OF FAVOR, The ElijahList, 5/26/07)
There is no such crown mentioned in the Bible. There is the crown of life (James 1:12, Rev. 2:10), the crown of righteousness (2 Tim. 4:8), the crown of glory (1 Pet. 5:4). There is also no “new and greater installment of the fruits” of the Spirit addressed in the Bible. Fruits are identified in the written Word. There is simply the evidence of the fruit of the Spirit in those who are obedient to Jesus Christ. The blessings of God are His to bestow, but serving the Lord and being under His protection may also bring Christians into trials that test their faith. Those who think that they are only walking with the Lord when they are “blessed” by Him are fooling themselves. False prophets identify blessings with money, power and influence. Many true missionaries and church planters had no worldly money, power or influence. Yet many souls were added to the Kingdom. The fact is that any “manifestations” in the Third Wave have been those that deceive and delude Christians and cause non-believers to not want become a Christian because the Truth has been brought into disrepute (2 Pet. 2:2).
